Lingerie chests are unique in their design. These types of storage units are slender and rise notably higher than more standard or traditional storage chests. As a consequence, these narrow chests can fit nicely into a room in which there is limited floorspace. They simply take up a far smaller amount of horizontal space than most other types of storage chests on the market today.
I set the quills side by side and demonstrate the differences, first breaking a cassia quill, with the ensuing loud snap when it breaks. Then I show the cinnamon quill, layered together, and how very easily it breaks and crumbles. With the ground version of each side by side, I ask the class members to smell the two; first the cassia that is the most familiar, and then the cinnamon. The startled reactions when they realize exactly how big a difference exists between these two spices, is quite rewarding.
Hope chest furniture can be used as coffee tables, side boards, entryway sideboards, end tables, buffet tables and as an extra cozy seating area. The extra storage that they provide is a plus since many people reside in smaller living areas than what they would prefer. Added to their ability to double as a storage unit along the top area used as a much needed space, blanket chests give every home warmth and a welcoming atmosphere with styling dating back to the 1700's and 1800's. This 'ageless' styling in a huge reason that blanket storage chests retain their standing as one of the most favored types of furniture.
There has been a lot of confusion about the make-up of this material, its composition, methods of manufacture and the source of their color since then. Some of these inlays were found to be a type of allotrope of sulfur in 1977. Some years later another inlay type was found on eighteenth-century hope chest furniture,also ivory-colored, that did not contain sulfur.
